  1. If you update from Mojave directly, all you need to do is follow the requirements posted here. 'done it on 3 x different Hacks with 100% success each time...
  2. Well, everything looks Ok on that front too.
  3. Please post compressed copy of your Clover EFI folder + compressed saved output from SysInfo. Never heard or seen Wireless die when BT was in used..
  4. What's your hibernation status? please type the following in Terminal pmset -g ls -la /var/vm and post results.
  5. Using old Yosemite's kext is actually a very bad idea; it can not be stressed enough. It causes KP... We have a BCM4350 guide and a DW1820A troubleshooting thread, please refer to them.
  6. There are many other people in the same situation I believe and I guess we'll just have to wait until research work on the matter makes progress...
  7. Which config file are you using? I understand that the Embedded Controller device of the E7470 is called "H_EC" but can you try and dump your ACPI tables by pressing F4 at Clover's main menu and then search your dumped DSDT (in ACPI/origin folder) for "PNP0C09"? Then, although it's not going to affect starting up Catalina, your add-on kexts needs adjusting: AppleBacklightFixup is obsolete and necessary with WhateverGreen; remove it either use USBInjectAll OR USBPorts_E7470, not both!
  8. I guess you were doing it wrong manually then because that script basically does exactly what I described in the inventory...
  9. No, clearly you have not read the instructions! You're supposed to replace IO80211Family kext in /S/L/E by High Sierra's... I've also made the effort to illustrate behaviour... https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11138-inventory-of-supportedunsupported-wireless-cards-2-sierra-catalina/?do=findComment&comment=94899
  10. Wifi: you'll have to provide full identification of the card. Realktek is meaningless in itself, we need the exact model to assess compatibility with macOS Bluetooth: cache or inject Rehabman's Broadcom firmware patching kexts (you can Google for these) Nvidia 920M: it's Kepler and should be supported but there's no support for Optimus dualGPU technology on Hackintoses. You can only run either on the HD5500 iGPU or the Nvidia 920M if your BIOS supports Optimus enabling/disabling Brightness control: install SSDT-PNLF (you can Google for it)
  11. It's all explained in our dedicated wireless cards inventory #2...
  12. No, there's nothing else known to drain a battery, except the heavy graphics-oriented nature of the OS. Maybe you ought to reconsider your UEFI method and switch to SSDT to disable (=power off) your dGPU. That's a guaranteed method.
  13. You're using SSDT-EC to create/add a dummy EC device in ACPI but, ideally, you should have just renamed ECDV to EC through Clover. There are several things to say about your addd-on kexts: USB_injector kext may not be suitable anymore. Instead, use Rehabman's USBInjectAll, after which you may run Hackintool app to generate your system-specific USBPorts kext USBInjectAll.kext.zip you're using latest WhateverGreen kext so AppleBacklightFixup is obsolete and should be removed you're using VirtualSMC alongside ACPIBatteryManager and this may be the actual cause of your problem. I'd revert to FakeSMC and its PlugIns if I were you FakeSMC.kext.zip Thereafter, make sure you disable hibernation and revert to plain old sleep as explained in our FAQ section.
  14. Try Mieze's BrcmPatchRAM3 kext; she posted her work in Headkaze Catalina's thread on the matter at InsanelyMac.
  15. Obviously the High Sierra installation package did not download properly since it should be about 6GB if memory serves me right. It happens sometimes for reasons that elude me. You could double check your SMBIOS settings and renew your serial numbers before retrying through the AppStore or maybe Google for those download scripts/line commands to get the package directly off Apple's repo. Anyway, this is getting off-topic so let's close this thread and re-assess situation in a new and more relevant one.
  16. -> moving to the correct and appropriate DESKTOP section. Please make every effort to post in the right section in the future.
  17. You're not describing your issue properly at all, so I'm going to take the guess that, having connected your Latitude E7470 to a Dell U3415W external screen over HDMI: you've set audio output to HDMI (or it was automatically selected) the audio icon in the Finder's bar does not allow you to adjust/control volume and your audio output setup is as illustrated below I've adjusted your thread title to that effect... Assuming the above is correct, all is perfectly normal, there's no technical problem at all and you would simply appear to ignore how HDMI-audio operates under macOS: volume of HDMI-audio cannot be controlled from the computer, only from the HDMI device itself. That's Standard behaviour. In other words, adjust your audio volume directly through your Dell U3415W's own control mechanisms... See here for details: https://downloads.dell.com/manuals/all-products/esuprt_display_projector/esuprt_display/dell-u3415w-monitor_user's guide_en-us.pdf
  18. Do you mean that you have no audio at all, i.e. not configured? What's the relation with your screen? What's the audio codec on this laptop and how did you setup audio output? Please be specific about your query and context.
  19. Correct, delete. AppleBacklightFixup (like a few others) is now obsolete with WEG.
  20. I've no idea about the particulars of that said UEFI configuration. But if you do not see the dGPU in IOReg, I guess it would do the job... NB: No signature, so no specs in signature as stated in post #1.
  21. Little chance of seeing AICPUPM loaded on a Skylake system... CPU power management is handled by the kernel since Haswell! AICPUPM last applies to Ivy Bridge. Unsupported but not disabled dGPUs drain battery on Hackintosh laptops, hence why we always try to disable them through specific SSDTs.
  22. Moving to the correct and appropriate "Bootloaders" section. In the future, please make every effort to post in the correct section and, once again, search the forum before posting to verify if your query/questions have not been raised before (I've asked you before). As it happens, it's already been the case...... So, again, all you have to do is set up the "Boot" section of your Clover config properly. Use Clover Configurator app to that effect. Select the target partition/volume by its name (or select "LastBootedVolume" if you only have 1 x macOS partition/volume) and make sure you set boot delay (i.e. Timeout) to 0. That's all, it's as simple as that. I suggest you read the documentation on Clover's wiki seeing you need to learn about it.
  23. All details are provided in my Latitude 7490 guide, please read it. And please stay on-topic in this 7490 thread. If you wish to discuss a different laptop model, please open a new thread; a little discipline is required and expected here...
  24. You may not have a 7490 that matches the same specs as mine. It's perfectly Ok not to use my DSDT which is only used to inject the code required to enable the brightness keys. Remove the DSDT of my pack and try to patch your own extracted one afterwards if you so wish.
  25. A few things are required to successfully run macOS Catalina on a Hackintosh, whether through a new/fresh installation of a direct upgrade from a previous OS X/macOS version/release. 1/ Embedded Controller: As mentioned here by @MaLd0n at InsanelyMac, since beta #5, macOS Catalina requires Embedded Controller (EC)-related patching for many computers. It's therefore important to check your Embedded Controller device (aka "PNP0C09" id) in DSDT/ACPI and apply the mandatory device renaming to "EC" in Clover's config (or directly in DSDT), failing what, Catalina will never boot. For instance, most Dell laptops since the era of the Latitude E4x00/E5x00/E6x00 range have an Embedded Controller device called "ECDV" in DSDT; in Clover, the necessary ACPI device renaming is as follows: Description: Changes ECDV to EC Find: 45434456 (ASCII for "ECDV" in hexadecimal notation) Replace: 45435F5F (ASCII for "EC__" in hexadecimal notation) Other known names for the Embedded Controller include "H_EC" or "EC0". If you find no Embedded Controller device in ACPI, this patch is not necessary. 2/ Clover: Clover needs to be at a minimum version supporting Catalina. Versions r503x, r504x and r505x are generally Ok. At the date of general release of Catalina, we recommend using Clover r5093 as the minimum version. Clover versions are available off Dids' Github repo. 3/ Add-on kexts: Lilu and associated plugins also need to be at versions updated for Catalina. At time of writing, we recommend the following minimum versions, all available off Acidanthera's Github repos: Lilu v1.3.8 Whatevergreen v1.3.3 AppleALC v1.4.2
